SW Cluster Potluck

Please join us at the SW Cluster Potluck on Friday, September 26 at the home of Margret Oethinger:

Eve's Circle Focuses on Joy in September

September's gathering is all about preserving—PRESERVING JOY! What brings you joy? How can you save a dollop of today's joy for later, when life needs a little sweetening? Is there a secret to appreciating joy as it happens? Join us in Fellowship Hall on Saturday, September 27, from 10 a.m. to noon. Bring something joyful to share: a reading, a song, a memory, a photo, an interpretive dance. Bring something to add to a joy collage: a couple of old magazines to cut up, a photograph you don't mind leaving behind, a poem (maybe something you shared). Bring a jar: any size, but a pint or larger works best for our project (and it doesn't have to be waterproof). Or just bring yourself for a joyful morning.
